Dublin-based IT firm expands into UK market

24 Mar 2010

Irish-owned logistics supplier Heavey RF has announced it is to expand into the UK market on the back of deals valued at more than £250,000 struck with existing and new customers in the UK since January 2010.

The Dublin-based IT company has opened an office in the UK and will hire three new employees there.

“This is an exciting next step in the company’s growth strategy,” said Ronan Clinton, managing director, Heavey RF. “The new office serves to strengthen our relationships with key Irish clients that have operations in the UK, as well as winning lucrative business in the UK marketplace.

“Our main strength is our technical ability and our understanding of all the components needed to deliver cost effective and operational solutions,” he added. 

“We believe there is a gap in the UK market for a company like us that has a track record of delivering a first-class 24/7 after-sales service and this will be a key differentiating factor between us and established UK competitors.”

Heavey spots gap in market

Heavey RF allows supply chains to use the latest technology to select warehouse stock more accurately and quickly, with the aim of reducing the cost of distribution and returns or re-deliveries.

The company’s Irish customers include Boyne Valley Group, Bulmers, BWG, Cahill May Roberts, Shamrock Foods and Superquinn.

Heavey RF was initially a hardware company but made the transition to include software solutions when it spotted a gap in the retail sector for voice-recognition solutions.
